Opening Day is Nearing


CATCH A HEALTHY HABIT CAFE is coming soon!

1st I want to introduce myself!
I am Glen Colello a 38 year old who is set to venture into
opening a RAW FOOD CAFE & RETAIL SHOP!

Ever since walking into Organic Ave in NYC (then on Ludlowe St) http://www.organicavenue.com/products/index.php
I wanted CT to have a place to buy raw food, raw snacks, raw necessities and most of all to just plain hang out! A Coffee House feel without coffee!
Well 4 years later here I am. The universe offered & I signed a lease!
The space features already working cafe, tables, chairs, fridges... they were looking for someone to sublease.
An in less than 3 weeks I will be open for business!

HERE'S WHERE YOU COME IN - Please Share!!!
1.
List your favorite smoothie recipe
2. Name one or two speakers you would pay $10-$25 to listen speak/demo
3. What unique concept should Catch A Healthy Habit Cafe have?


Thanks for now!

Menu to be posted soon!
As well as pictures of Cafe then & now!
GRAND OPENING FEB. 10th 11am-8pm!
(Hope to be open prior to 2/10 stay posted!)

Hi Glen
congrats and I want to visit and bring Oog Chocolates to your new cafe.
I also want to just say that I was traveling the other day and made a smoothie in a friends old sunbeam blender.
2 bananas
2 granny smith apples
vitamineral green powder
crystal manna flakes
coconut butter
pumpkin seeds
goji berries
not more than a spoonful of almond butter
cacao nibs
figs
honey
maca
mesquite powder
3 ribs of celery
1 lemon (or juice of)

This smoothie surprised me and filled me up. Use your intuition for the quantities. Great news for the world that you are doing this.
I'd love to pay $10 to see Jonathan Winters at your cafe. I'd actually pay $25 for that. Thanks for blazing the raw trail in your area. I hope to visit from Brooklyn.

Hi Glen! congratulations on your new blog and store!! I agree with Imani, CT needs more raw food!!
Wow! Mike's recipe looks like a lot of fun too!! I'll have to try it : )


What if you incorporated music? Maybe where people could come to hang out, eat, and play something acoustic i.e. guitars, something mellow since it looks like you'll be doing poetry, it might fit?
Looking forward to seeing you at your new place!
: )
Peace.....

Hey Glen!

I can't wait to be a loyal customer in the cafe. Thanks for providing New Haven County with more raw options. I agree with the idea for music and art - maybe poetry or acoustic guitar on the weekends? There's a guy, Tim Palmieri, who's brilliant with guitar (plays down at BAR every Wednesday night) That'd be fun to have! :)

Also, what about wireless internet? I'd love to come after teaching class & have a spot to work/read before trekking back over the Q bridge... these are just some ideas, but I'm sure the food will be enough of a reason to come there too! ;)

Good luck!!!
